on the table. the president says you know, you've got to repeal these tax cuts for the wealthy, john boehner says no, we're going to stunt growth in the economy if we do that. i think they all agree you have to extend tax cuts at least for the middle class, that's kind of the intersection of the diagram, if you will, where they do agree. the question that i have is there is a way to increase tax rates for the wealthy without just raising the rate to 39.6 from 35, is there a way to do that, say, through tax reform, where you cap deductions for the wealthiest taxpayers, and in effect they will pay a higher rate, but you won't call it a higher rate. so, is that a matter of semantics? >> he says the wealthiest to pay a little more in taxes. i didn't hear him use the number 35% or 39.6%. >> exactly. >> so if they eliminate a lot of deductions and say if you're making more than than amount of money, you're not going to be eligible for these deductions, these loopholes, these tax credits or whatever, is that an area where they can exrie myself. >> he's had a proposal exactly to that effect in the l

increases. we will hear from john baoehner too for the republican party. >> raising taxes on small business people is the wrong prescription. >> raising tax rates is unacceptable. and frankly it couldn't even pass the house. putting increased revenues on the table but through reforming our tax code. >> i want to bring in ruth marcus, columnist at "the washington post" and perry bacon, an msnbc contributor. what's your sense of this? are we setting up for a feisty but doable deal? but is it also possible we're in for a battle of epic proportions? >> yes to both questions. i think feisty is a great word. i think it is doable. whether that means it's going to get done is another question. and speaker boehner is in a delicate position. he would like to e get something done, but he's got an unruly boisterous caucus to be managing. >> i heard from a senator that he's going to need to bring in eric cantor somehow. he's going to have to enlist him if it's going to get done. we did get the preview yesterday. what's the president's strategy going to be? does he need to set an agenda for how to move f
that will automatically go into effect at the end of the year. speaker of the house john boehner opened the door yesterday to getting the deal done and striking a more conciliatory tone. >> mr. president, this is your moment. we're ready to be led, not as democrats or republicans, but as americans. we want you to lead, not as a liberal or a conservative, but as president of the united states of america. we want you to succeed. let's challenge ourselves to find the common ground that has eluded us. let's rise above the dysfunction and do the right thing together for our country. >> meantime, senate majority leader harry reid said he is open to working together too, but there was a but. >> i'm going to do everything within my power to be as conciliatory as possible. i want to work together. but i want everyone to also understand you can't push us around. we want to work together. >> let me bring in legendary investigative journalist carl bernstein and political reporter for "the washington post" nia ma malika henderson. good morning to you. everybody is sounding cordial, but we still have the same players.
john allen, the u.s. leader in the war zone. apparently he has been in e-mail contact with the woman who blew the whistle in the petraeus scandal. a lot of layers to get to this morning. >> oh, yeah. >> i'm paula faris. >> to say this is getting messy is an understatement. high-ranking officials, two wrapped up in who knows what this thing is all about. on top of that, the fbi has been peeking around the home of david petraeus' mistress. it's getting pretty interesting, folks. we'll have all the details coming up in this half hour, including the news that has broken overnight. good morning once again. i'm rob nelson. we'll have the breaking aspects of that story and also what the fbi is saying about how it wept about, its early investigation in the case. lots of details to get to. >>> they were at paula broadwell's house last night. she reportedly is being completely cooperative. handing over laptops, any sort of information. she just wants to get this behind her. >>> a good samaritan who paid a very heavy price for coming to the rescue. his life-changing decision and its consequence

? some say john kerry, some have speculated about susan rice, the embattled u.n. ambassador, stepping into hillary clinton's role. >> that sounds kind of farfetched, but who knows? anything's possible. certainly, the problem susan rice would have is because of what she said about the successful raid about islamist militants on the u.s. diplomatic outpost if benghazi being the fault of a youtube video, that was very bad for her. she would compound a problem that the departure of hillary clinton would help alleviate. state department's been really under close scrutiny because of the response to this. the lack of preparation for it, for the attack and the response thereafter, that's something they would like to get away from. putting susan rice in there would intensify it. megyn: last but not least, quickly, if geithner goes, i mean, that's an important job he has. and who is likely to fill that role, and how would it change americans', you know, day-to-day lives? >> well, what the president has in tim geithner's departure is an -- or assumed departure is an opportunity to send a message
on the next 2-4 years or 2-4 weeks. john boehner says he's willing to work with the president to solve the problems facing us now. >> the president knows he and i have worked together. the election is over. now it's time to get to work. bill: governor, how you doing? i haven't heard you comment since the election. it's an honor to have you back. what's going on here. boehner is a deal maker. i'm the easiest guy in the world to get along with. >> john boehner and mitch mcconnell are professionals when it comes to understanding the art of the deal. we didn't win the elections, didn't get the senate. we have to accept the hand that's been dealt to us. if you don't get to take something off the table unless you put something on the table unless you have got a gun. we don't have a gun. we didn't get that in the election. so what we have got to understand and i'm hoping members of congress will follow the leader and members of the senate will follow their leader. you can't have every republican member of congress and member of the senate trying to create a side deal. that's disaster in the m
healthy it shines. >>> there is trouble in paradise for an american man who once had it all. john mcafee made a fortune. >> now police want to question him about the murder of his neighbor. but he fears he could be the next victim. abc's matt guttman reports from belize. >> reporter: john mcafee is now becoming synonymous with drugs, paranoia and mysterious murder of mcafee's murder, greg fall, overnight saturday here in belize. mcafee is on the run telling wired magazine he has drastically changed his appearance. >> reporter: police tell abc news, the 67-year-old is a person of interest and is now being hunted by police even american officials still investigating the scene of the crime. >> when the police arrived at his property, he saw them coming and he hid. he in fact says that he dug himself into the sand and put a cardboard box over his head. but he is convinced if the police catch him, the police will kill him. >> reporter: the island, of palm shaded sand in the caribbean, accessible by puddle jumpers, so intimate everybody knows everybody. shane mccann was one of the first on the
, now, the highly respected general who commands forces in afghanistan, john allen, accused of exchanging potentially inappropriate e-mails with tampa socialite jill kelley. but after the pentagon's dramatic announcement about allen earlier this week, overnight, the defense secretary seemed to be backing off. >> no one should leap to any conclusions here. general allen is doing an excellent job at isaf. he certainly has my continued confidence. >> reporter: an echo of what the white house said tuesday. >> i can tell you that the president thinks very highly of general allen and his service to his country. as well as the job he's done in afghanistan. >> reporter: officials tell abc news, that the vast number of e-mails allen exchanged with jill kelley, who sparked the fbi investigation into broadwell and petraeus, show no evidence of any sexual relations. but are friendly and, perhaps, a bit flirtatious. in one note, kelly telling allen she saw him on tv. he responds, thanks, dear. you're a sweetheart. meanwhile, david petraeus' sudden departure as cia director has created lo

't think so. john boehner laughing in the face that the leader of the republican party from here on out might be paul ryan. that guy? the republican party pick its new face, its new leader after their electoral disaster. that's going to be an amazing thing to watch. here's just a case in point. it was an overall electoral disaster for republicans to lose the presidency. it was thought to be impossible for them to lose the presidency. nobody since the great depression has been reelected as president with an unemployment rate like the one we have now. but barack obama manage d to do it. just take as a case in point. the tremendous republican disaster in the united states senate. i mean, they had a bad night on tuesday night. but in the senate, it was a sure bet that the republicans were supposed to retake control of the senate this year. a sure bet. they are only defending ten seats. not only did the republicans not retake the senate, the democrats held on to control and increased their margins. that's impossible. in a year like this. and the depth of that failure is bottomless. look at h
to tackle the impending fiscal cliff but the president and the speaker of the house john boehner each drawing lines that they say they will not cross. the major hurdles, that threat to send the economy into a tailspin, that's coming up next. >>> plus a nascar race turning into a full-scale brawl. look at this. mayhem breaking out of the everybody going at it. we'll tell you what set it off. after this. ve lately. but because of business people like you, things are beginning to get rolling. and regions is here to help. making it easier with the expertise and service to keep those wheels turning. from business loans to cash management, we want to be your partner moving forward. so switch to regions. and let's get going. together. jenna: well come back, everyone. now let's return to the economy. the president and house speaker john boehner are suggesting they are willing to compromise to prevent our economy from going over that so-called fiscal cliff but both sides are digging in their heels whether or not to race tax rates for the wealthy. rich edson of the fox business network watching

senator john mccain and graham who say they do not trust her. >> if senator john mccain and senator graham want to go after someone they should go after me. i am happy to have that discussion with them. for them to go after the u.n. ambassador would had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation base the republicans are trying to see would will blink over extensions of the bush operation upper income tax cuts. the president says raising those taxes and corporate taxes would account for half the money needed to avoid the automatic tax hikes and spending cuts the fiscal cliff is made up. he turned the question around warning against letting taxes go up on the middle class. >> what doesn't make sense. our economy can't afford that right now. certainly no middle class family can afford that right now. nobody in either party says they want it to happen. >>reporter: the president begins talks with congressional leaders on friday and they have until the end of the year to reach an agreement. >>shepard: paula broadwell who had an affair with general petraeus admitted she took

and fatal explosion in indianapolis. abc's john schriffen is on the story. >> reporter: our affiliate is now reporting at least two people are dead. eight others injured. the blast rocked the neighborhood when many were asleep. authorities have been using search lights going door to door to see if the number of victims will grow. those at the scene said it looked like a war zone. late saturday night, left this quiet suburban neighborhood up in flames. two houses leveled. two set ablaze and more than 200 people forced from their homes. the scene, collapsed homes and metal from cars melted. the blast could be heard from miles around. >> it was so big and overwhelming. you can't even complain. >> reporter: the shock waves blew out windows and garage doors of nearby houses. many damaged by flying debris. >> as soon as you go outside it was like it was snowing. the house, that i just saw, was just gone. >> reporter: many neighbors are staying with relatives and friends. others are sleeping on colts at local elementary schools. they're waiting until daylight to search through the rubble. the autho
on the investigation here's abc's john schifrin. >> reporter: this gaping hole is all that's left. charred foundations, burned out roofs, surrounded by pieces of homes scattered everywhere. an explosion so intense at least two people are now dead and at least eight others injured. >> garage doors blown in. windows blown in. houses completely leveled. nothing left. >> reporter: this suburban community outside of indianapolis was rocked from their beds when blast obliterated two homes and ignited several others. nearly 200 people were forced to quickly flee into the streets, many wearing pajamas, clutching their pets, a scene so desperate, neighbors rushed in to help. >> as soon as i got to the house and heard people screaming only thing i could think of these people had to got out or they're not going to make it. i just ran in without thinking, me and andrew here, pulled them out as fast as we could. >> reporter: investigators are combing through the rubble looking for clues. >> so far that survey has indicated there are no gas leaks in the area, however, we've got a lot more investigation to do. >> re
are the names that's been tossed about a lot lately seems to be john huntsman. of course the former ambassador from, governor of utah. one-time presidential candidate. how real is the possibility of john huntsman returning to the obama administration in some capacity? >> well john huntsman's explanation of leaving the obama administration as his ambassador in china and returning to the u.s. immediately as presidential candidate, was an awkward one. and i think that john huntsman had a difficult time explaining that. not only to the conservative base, but likely to the president as well. so if president obama wants to look past that and extend an olive branch and give john huntsman another position where he can say, you know i've once again hired a republican, i could see that happening. john huntsman explaining why he would then take it, would be another wrinkle in a fascinating political story. >> a.b. stoddard, molly ball, do stick around ladies, i want to come back to you later in the hour. >> will do.

john boehner and mc mcmcconnell are as good as we have. >>neil: well the president needs speaker boehner more than mcth connell --. bucky>>governor huckabee: both are seasoned washington insiders. the republicans in the senate and the republicans in the house of representatives have to trust and follow their leaders. that will be anathema to a lot of republicans. you cannot have 535 people all negotiating for their particular part of the pie. it can't work. >>neil: who gives? >>governor huckabee: everyone the that is how you govern. >>neil: they have never done that. >>governor huckabee: you have to. >>neil: the president is saying elections have consequences. is the consequence of this, sock the rich? >>governor huckabee: the consequences of the election, we have more governors that are republican, same house of representatives, same senate, same president. meet the new boss, same as the old boss, nothing has changed. what has to change rather than sitting down and starting at point of where they disagree, they need to sit down and start at the point of where they can agree to t
's possible with john boehner saying okay, we will get rid of some deductions that rich people enjoy that the president is now going to have his bluff called. i think is he going to get some tax increases on rich people, will he actually reform the entitlement spending? >> you are in charge, what is the compromise? >> well, i think the big part of the compromise, boehner has to get is the spending cuts have to happen now. people talk about this sequester and government spending might get cut. most of it is in the future. he has got to get in the hundreds of billions in year one to say we are actually turning this ship. >> james freeman from the "wall street journal" thanks for coming in with your expertise on. this thanks. good to be here. >> your tax dollars going to pay for sex change operations? what? we'll tell you where this just has been given the green light. >> then, it's been two weeks since super storm sandy and thousands of people are still in the dark this morning. they have been left freezing over these past weeks. so where is the help? our own brian kilmeade is going to
to raising taxes on the rich? >> there's no question about it. john boehner was sounding, you know, like there might be some way to compromise on that issue. and i love bill crystal, what he had to say about it. who is somewhat of a leader of the more conservative branch of the republican party. so i'm optimistic. but we don't need all the republicans to go along. we need enough rational republicans and then the democrats can provide the rest of of the votes in we get a fair compromise. but anything less than fair that protects the middle class, the president has said he's not going to sign it. >> cynthia, the "new york times" reported on a conference call john boehner the speaker had and it's very interesting what tone he set and a gop senator. let me give you the quote p the quote from the "times" is that their party lost badly, mr. boehner said, they had to avoid the nasty showdowns that marked much of the last two years. members on the call subdued and dark, murmured words of support. that's interesting. and then you had senator bob corker, a key member of the banking committee, went
the pipeline. mapped door budget cuts kick in in 54 days. house speaker john boehner says it is time for the president to lead. here he is is talking about that. >> mr. president, this is your moment. we're ready to be lead, not as democrats or republicans but americans. we want you to lead, not as a liberal or conservative but as president of the united states of america. we want you to succeed. bill: stuart varney, anchor of "varney & company", fox business network. the issues on the table are the same issues as monday. we want you to succeed by the way. what did you hear or what are you hearing based on the statements out of the washington now? >> three statements to listen to very carefully. speaker boehner, senate majority leader harry reid, and the big union boss, richard trumka. if you add them all together, tell you exactly what they said in a moment, add them all together the outlines of a deal would look like this. this is on the fiscal cliff. the outlines would possibly look like this. raise taxes, certainly raise tax revenues right now, beginning next year. promise to cut
, and it's such a shock that nothing else could have been done accept to have his resignation. >> john, the relationship between the president and general petraeus has been portrayed into its early formation as being tense and difficult but actually of late it's become much more mutually supportive and, indeed, in general petraeus' letter of resignation he says of the president thank you for your extraordinary service to our country. clearly the relationship between the two had improved. indeed, none of us had expected his position in the cabinet to change, did we? >> not at all. if you turn the clock back to 2009, there was real concern among the political people in the white house that he was going to run for president on the republican party ticket. it sounds a little out there now, but these were, you know, top aides to the president who worried about that. not that petraeus was planning to do so, but they saw him as a potential political threat. that's how popular he was. that's how much stature he had after the iraq surge, and so there was some real distrust there initially. not
